We've recently installed some 2800 series APs, we're seeing significant packet loss on two identical Windows 10 Intel 8260 clients. Only appears to be when connected to a 2800 AP. We're running 184.108.40.206 on our 5500 controllers. Downgrading to 220.127.116.11 currently to troubleshoot. Any bugs?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can't quite figure this out. The Windows clients connect at 866Mbps, we see packet loss. If we update the wireless driver to a new Intel 19.0.1 the packet loss stops but the clients only connect at 173.3Mbps. Changing to code 18.104.22.168 doesn't make any difference, only seems to be occurring to clients connected to the 2800 APs, have tried both radios and the 2.4 in 5GHz, same results. What's going on?
No, still seeing issues.we sometimes see a delay with a client connecting to wireless, client is able to logon without wireless causing us trouble. See this with Windows 10 with both Intel 7265 and 8260.
Both Intel and Cisco need to get their act together and work together to sort these problems out. We see low throughput too (halved) but only when through the controller, if we use another vendor or convert the AP to autonomous it's fine.
We have a couple cases open currently so hopefully they'll get resolved.
Similar issues here on 5508 running 3802i, 2702i, 1852i and 3602i all on 22.214.171.124.
The only thing that worked for us to rectify this was to roll back the Intel Drivers for the 7260/8260 Dual AC adaptors to version 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11. On these Drivers both chipsets work at 866mbps.
As soon as the drivers were upgraded to 18.104.22.168 the 7260 Chipsets failed to work at all unless you alter the setting on the adaptor from VHT to HT mode, but thats lame as it restricts you to 173.3 Mb connection rate.
Chipsets 8260 work with 22.214.171.124 onwards and right up to 19.40, but devices were then limited to 173.3Mb connection rate ... so we have been operating under the belief that these latest drivers have been "working" for a few months now!
If nothing else, it seems thatrolling back the drivers can at least restore AC connectivity.
Had a TAC for the issues with the 2802i and there are several bugs with several types of Intel AC adapters and hw_revisions for those adapters. The Intel -N models don't seem to be affected, in my environment.
In any case, the driver package 19.40 from Intel fixes all those issues but one. The last one is scheduled to be fixed in WLC 126.96.36.199 (if the channel order isn't from smallest to highest, the Intel adapter only connects with 173mbps and the speed is even way lower, in the area of 1-10mbps).
Btw. I reached out to Intel and they told me that they also fixed some issue with the Cisco AP 1142 platform in the 19.40, which is open in the 19.30.
We had these issues, they were fixed by driver updates and being on beta builds, 188.8.131.52 seems good. We had association delays of 1 minute too, this was fixed by installing the Intel ProSet package.
I ran into this issue today and between myself and our windows admin found that with all the same commonalities above (2802i AP, WLC 184.108.40.206, Windows 10, Intel 8260 Adapter) that the cause looks related to the Windows 10 Creator Update and Receive Segment Coalescing.
